Monopoly Redesign: Eliot Spitzer Edition

Studio 360
The World
Since the board game Monopoly first came out in the 1930s, capitalism and tycooning have changed a lot. Someone who knows that better than most is former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, who now hosts a public affairs program on CNN. Spitzer told Kurt Andersen his first lesson in the laws of the free market occurred during family Monopoly games: his father, a titan of New York real estate, showed no mercy. Eliot Spitzer weighed in on our Monopoly redesign project. Tell us how you would change the game by May 3, and we'll share your ideas with our game designer, Brenda Brathwaite.    (Mark Strozier/flickr)
